Architectural design is a process that results in a new -or remodeled- built space. Once an owner outlines her needs, an architectural design project launches. The creative activity behind meeting the desires of architectural clients is considered the first phase of architectural design. The outcome of this effort is an architectural design plan, which will contain illustrations and informative details such as the required building materials, fixtures, appliances, hardware, doors and windows. This initial phase is refined until construction documents can evolve from the approved plan.
